ABSTRACT
The article focuses on live oaks (Quercus virginiana) which are evergreen oaks that thrive in the sandy soil of the southeastern coastal plain. They are known for having stubby, often buttressed trunks that quickly diverge into nearly horizontal branches. Live oaks produce yearly crops of small, elongate, dark brown acorns. It cites the affinity of Spanish moss with Quercus virginiana.
